What exactly do we mean by ‘Culture’?
Broadly speaking, culture encompasses all the various characteristics, behaviours and knowledge particular to a group of people. It can include everything from language, values and religion to cuisine and the arts.
Establishing a culture that is positive is hugely important, as those shared traits can help encourage a sense of identity for people within the group and can also help others to shape their understanding of what makes those people who they are.
At XL Events, we know that culture influences every part of life, and this includes the workplace.
Why do we need a positive workplace culture?
Have you ever wondered what makes one company great to work for and another awful? The answer is workplace culture, and it is something which can easily make or break your company.
In a constantly changing world, XL Events knows that understanding the importance of workplace culture is vital. Every company has its own distinctive culture that develops as result of the values, beliefs, attitudes and goals shared by its members.
The numbers suggest that 94% of executives and 88% of employees consider workplace culture to be essential to a company’s success. There are plenty of benefits to having positive workplace culture:
- Improves teamwork and collaboration
- Helps to attract and retain staff
- Boosts your company’s reputation
- Increases motivation and morale
- Drives productivity
As the saying goes, actions speak louder than words. When it comes to workplace culture, having a ‘mission statement’ or ‘vision for the future’ is not enough to make a difference. Everyone, from high level executives down to the most junior members, all have a part to play in actively seeking opportunities to inspire positive workplace culture.
Team building can help create positive workplace culture!
The success of a company depends on the relationships between its members. When you can work successfully alongside one another, the experience is significantly improved for everyone involved.
When there are poor dynamics and a breakdown in teamwork, a company will inevitably struggle. This is where XL Event’s corporate team building activities come in. Using engaging and innovative team building activities, our programs are a great way to build relationships amongst your team and establish a positive culture in your workplace.
Using team building to give back to the community
These days, team building activities are more exciting than ever before. At XL Events, we believe that team building activities are a great opportunity to do more than just promote engagement and boost team dynamics.
If you’d like to get in on the action, we have some amazing team building activities that we can hold in a range of places such as Perth, Newcastle, Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and the list goes on, that benefit a good cause. For example, The Bike Factory is one of our most rewarding charity team building activities. Not only will it give your team a real boost but will also put a much-needed smile on a child’s face.
By aligning your team building activities with a good cause, you’ll have the chance to give back to the community your company serves. This is a great way to demonstrate a commitment to corporate social responsibility, through recognising your role within the community, taking responsibility for that role and actively striving to make a difference.
If you’re looking to make your next team building day something special, don’t hesitate to give the XL Events Sales Office a call on 1300 733 385 or complete our online form.
